Conference and Events
Feet stop. Eyes pop. Jaws drop.
That what we all want, isn’t it? Events that make people feel something. Or do something.
And that’s what we create every single day – whether it’s the elegant glamour of award ceremonies, the buzz of a brand launch or the gravitas of international medical conventions and political party conferences.
From our gorgeous glass-domed space and amazing acoustics and lighting to our teams of seasoned event planners and detail-loving tech support, we’re always working to wow each person who walks through our doors.
We’ve got a load of flexible spaces (including a dramatic 1,640-seat auditorium and a more intimate 330-seat stage), built-in F&B options across our bright high-ceilinged concourse, and a panoramic view across the river to the Newcastle skyline. Plus we’re certified by both BEAM and AIM, so you know all those spaces are safe, accessible, and green.
And the cherry? We’re also a charity, empowering and inspiring people through music. So your event will make a difference as well as an impression.

And if that wasn’t enough…
We’ve won loads of awards for our accessibility so when we say, “everyone is welcome” we really mean it. Staff are trained in best practice around dementia awareness, neurodiversity, LGBTQIA+ ; assistance animals are always welcome; we have a level access to all areas. And all this amongst so many other ways we ensure our venue is accessible and that everyone is greeted with warmth from our team.
